Create and deliver coaching programmes using sports knowledge
You could find yourself working as a high performance sports coach, or a community or school sports coach. A high performance coach develops athletes and players in high-performance settings. A community coach motivates and engages people of all ages and abilities in community sports and physical activity settings. A school sports coach collaborates with teachers to develop pupils’ skills.

You’ll need to measure the impact of your coaching strategies through analysis of the participant and team performance.
